News from money games research

Monday, May 7th, 2012
India, Korea and – gambling. Those have been the three subjects of my research for the last five years. The connection between the three in my research has been the fact that they have dealt with the new media culture. In India I studied mobile phones, in Korea mobiles and internet, and in gambling especially online poker. My gambling culture research received a boost a few weeks ago when I got a grant from the Finnish Foundation for Gaming Research. According to my research plan, I will eventually write a book about online poker as a cultural phenomenon. The book will include most of my research up to date, extended revisions of my columns for Poker Magazine and Pokerilehti as well as a year-long online gaming diary of a gambling rookie – me. In the meantime, if you are interested in gambling research, you can read one of my latest publications on poker.

I will also give a presentation about my recent studies (including the themes of my upcoming book) on online poker at Nordic DiGRA 2012 in Tampere, Finland in June as well as at the 9th European Conference on Gambling Studies and Policy Issues in Loutraki, Greece in September.

Moreover, a chapter by me and Dr. Perpetual Crentsil titled Ethnography on Immigrant Gambling and Online Poker for a book edited by Prof. Pauliina Raento will come out this summer by Gaudeamus.

And for the last issue of this update, I will (finally) revise and resubmit my manuscript for Visual Culture and Gender. The text is titled Signs of Battle and Joy: Observations of Gender in Online Poker Imagery and will analyze poker advertisements in the Finnish edition of Poker Magazine as well as apply Jean Baudrillard’s and Umberto Eco’s views of hyperreality while at it.

The Finnish India Researcher Unite!

Friday, October 7th, 2011
Yesterday Dr. Mari Korpela from University of Tampere and I lead the India Workshop at Finnish Anthropology Conference 2011. Delightfully many India researchers as well as students were there and many interesting presentations (in Finnish) were held. In the future we hope to strengthen our network and build a webiste as well as a discussion group. If there is interest on the matter, we will consider exapanding our group and organizing a workshop on South Asia related research next year.

Below is a short summary about the people who held presentations in the workshop. All abstracts of the conference can be read here

How can anthropology contribute to an understanding of the impact of new digital technologies?

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Conference poster (source)

European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) held its 11th conference in Maynooth, Ireland 24-27th August 2010. One of the sessions was titled Digital Anthropology and described how...

“[…] People’s imagination of the digital seems to bifurcate as something that, on the one hand, lies at the keyboard at the tip of their fingers but at the same time appears as an abstraction from traditional analogue modes of representation. This bifurcation is often what makes the digital appear to be either the cause or the solution of impending crises. Often this imagination is fed from science fiction and images of humans losing control of the planet to the new technologies themselves.

This is perhaps the moment when anthropology has to choose how to respond to digital technologies. Whether to demonise them as a form of alienation, to romanticise them as open-source utopias or get to grips with the way they speedily become part of everyday life. […]

Here’s a list of all the presentations (and author names).
  • A brief theory of digital anthropology (Miller and Horst)
  • Digital sound technologies: the renegotiation of music production, consumption and collecting practices (Bowsher)
  • Phreaker/hacker/troller as trickster (Coleman)
  • Spimes as material culture: anthropological approaches to (and through) location-aware objects (DeNicola)
  • Emerging futurities in Muslim southeast Asia: science fantasy, digital development and the urge for moral technology (Barendregt)
  • Digital dramas, online liminality and the state of creolization in Tanzania (Uimonen)
  • Phones, foreigners, and the fluctuating digital divide in Southern Mozambique (Archambault)
  • Culture, conflict and translocal communication: mobile technology and politics in rural West Bengal, India (Tenhunen)
  • Migration and virtual community 2.0 (Komito)
  • Hope infrastructure: enacting expectations in bloggers’ material practices (Estatella)
  • Indigenizing digital technologies, imagining cultural futures: Ara Irititja reshapes new media in contemporary Australia (Thorner)
Read all the abstracts here.
On the same site you can find the email address of each presenter.
